Thats not how boxing works. When you become a PPV exclusive fighter (Pacquiao,Mayweather etc) you have a certain guarantee how much you get paid. You can't match them up with someone who isn't gonna sell because its about who can you make the most money with. And remember that we're in a recession and fans can stream fights so you gotta prove your worth the money.
Tim Bradley can't sell out a KFC and have sold ZERO PPV's in his career. His style is boring and people hate seeing a fight end on a headbutt. Khan is the far bigger draw than Bradley but still isnt a PPV fighter in America yet. 2-3 more exciting fights and he will be. Shane Mosley and Margarito have the styles people will pay to see them fight, not on the A side but B side. Mosley - Mora didn't sell for sh*t and Shane unfairly lost some credibility in that fight cuz of styles.
